The BBC are reported to be releasing their long-awaited iPlayer app this Thursday, February 10th.
For now there will only be an iPad version, but it is possible that a version for the iPhone might follow. The iPlayer app will also only be available in the United Kingdom for now.
It is reported that an app for BBC America will be released later this year, perhaps as early as July.
We can only hope that this app proves to be more accessible than the BBC's news app.
